To support this roll out, we are committing 5,000 AXS ($145,450) from the play- to-earn allocation pool in prize money for community tournaments taking place this year. We are accepting event proposals from July 15th - July 29th from community tournament organizers and will publish a schedule for the rest of the year, after approving select events. Greetings, Lunacians! Exciting times continue in the Axie Infinity world, as we continue to see unparalleled growth and many new faces enter the community. That excitement has also translated to the Axie competitive scene. More community members have been stepping up to organize their own, grass-roots events; and similarly, we've had more requests for event sponsorship than ever before. However, this amazing growth has created some new challenges when it comes to scaling our game servers. As a result, the challenge server that is usually available for scrimmages and tournament matches has been offline. While our team of developers continue to work hard on scaling, we will also be deploying dedicated servers specifically for esports events over the next few months. This will ensure more stability for our tournament organizers, during these turbulent times of hyper-growth. We expect the challenge server to be back online like usual by the end of the year. To support the roll out of this dedicated esports server, we are committing 5,000 AXS ($145,450) from the play-to-earn allocation pool in prize money for community tournaments taking place this year. a.image2.image-link.image2-128-102 { padding-bottom: 125.49019607843137%; padding-bottom: min(125.49019607843137%, 128px); width: 100%; height: 0; } a.image2.image-link.image2-128-102 img { max-width: 102px; max-height: 128px; } We have some big plans for 2022 and beyond when it comes to Axie esports and creator programs, but in the mean time we need more help from the community! We need you to send us your event proposals for the rest of 2021 and make the strongest case possible as to why your event is worthy of some of this support! Proposals will be accepted from: July 15th, 2021 - July 29th, 2021 Proposed events must take place between: August 6th, 2021 - November 30th, 2021 Event proposals should include: Scheduling details like dates, times, number of days, duration. Format details like: open vs invitational, bracket type, platform. Prize pool request and distribution strategy. Information on any other sponsors or event partners. Logistical information about administration plan and event operations. Broadcast plan, which languages, which channels, who's casting. Viewership estimates, entry estimates, unique elements. Marketing strategy, social media, how will people know about your event? What are the key factors that will make your event successful? What other events or tournaments have you successfully run in the past? Other considerations: Sometimes less is more; focus on short, executable events rather than long leagues. Don't try to do too much with every event; focus on delivering the highest possible quality, instead of the largest possible scope. You're welcome to submit multiple events or dates, but our goal is to spread the support to multiple organizers. Date ranges are great! We will do our best to meet specific date requests where we can, but prepare to be flexible when it comes to scheduling! Esports server limitations: The esports server will require whitelisting to get access. This means that for each tournament, we will require the event organizer to submit a finalized list of all participants and their Axie account email addresses no less than 24 hours before the event starts. Failure to submit a full list of participants could result in some players not having access to the server. Due to the manual nature of this whitelisting process, we encourage all tournament organizers to consider ways to limit the scope of their events by region, time zone, rating, or any other relevant metric. Final Thoughts: We will review all of the event proposals submitted by August 6th, 2021 with the goal of coming up with a master schedule for the next four months. Our team is hoping to schedule about 10 events during this four month period, with the goal of spreading the AXS across multiple regions and skill-levels. We're excited to hear from everyone in the Axie community that has been thinking about hosting a tournament this year and publish a clear schedule of events to come! Of course, we won't be able to accommodate every proposal and want to remind everyone that there will be many more opportunities like this in the future. Please don't be discouraged if we can't accommodate your event plans in this cycle. This is just the beginning of what we have in store, and we are excited to continue growing together. There is still so much more to come. Remember- it's a marathon, not a sprint! Proposal Submission Click the button to get started with your proposal!

We’re now the #1 crypto application by weekly revenue. On the development front, we made progress on AXS staking, the Ronin decentralized exchange (Dex), and battles V2. Axie is the first game designed to change the world and create economic freedom. This is the reason behind our exponential growth. Axie is more than a game, it’s a place for you to live, work, and play. June was the greatest month we’ve ever had. Let’s dive into our recent progress. 📈 GrowthGrowth has gone exponential with thousands of new citizens joining each day. a.image2.image-link.image2-818-1456 { padding-bottom: 56.18131868131868%; padding-bottom: min(56.18131868131868%, 818px); width: 100%; height: 0; } a.image2.image-link.image2-818-1456 img { max-width: 1456px; max-height: 818px; } 2.3 million unique visitors have visited Axieinfinity.com in the last 30 days! a.image2.image-link.image2-824-1456 { padding-bottom: 56.59340659340659%; padding-bottom: min(56.59340659340659%, 824px); width: 100%; height: 0; } a.image2.image-link.image2-824-1456 img { max-width: 1456px; max-height: 824px; } Source: CryptoslamMonthly volume on our marketplace skyrocketed 334% to over 128 million dollars (57,000 ETH)! Our volume is almost three time larger than the second place project. a.image2.image-link.image2-820-1456 { padding-bottom: 56.31868131868132%; padding-bottom: min(56.31868131868132%, 820px); width: 100%; height: 0; } a.image2.image-link.image2-820-1456 img { max-width: 1456px; max-height: 820px; } We’ve crossed 250,000 daily active players and 200,000 Discord members. We’re on track to become the largest Discord server in the world, passing Fortnite, in about 18 weeks. a.image2.image-link.image2-822-1456 { padding-bottom: 56.456043956043956%; padding-bottom: min(56.456043956043956%, 822px); width: 100%; height: 0; } a.image2.image-link.image2-822-1456 img { max-width: 1456px; max-height: 822px; } Axie isn’t just the #1 NFT project, it’s also now the #1 revenue generating application in the entire crypto industry! a.image2.image-link.image2-813-1456 { padding-bottom: 55.83791208791209%; padding-bottom: min(55.83791208791209%, 813px); width: 100%; height: 0; } a.image2.image-link.image2-813-1456 img { max-width: 1456px; max-height: 813px; } Axie’s Twitch viewership is exploding! This is helping introduce new gamers to our revolution. Shoutout to our amazing streamers who are spearheading this momentum! We had over 6,000 viewers tune into our livestream with teammates Zyori, Jihoz, and Psycheout. Miss the action?

It will include starter Axies, a revamped and faster-paced battle system, and many other surprises! We gave the community a fresh sneak peak at battles v2 art during the livestream. This month we: Started an internal test for updated PVE chimera battles. Created a wide variety of terrifying chimera for you to battle. Released an internal spec for upgrading and managing cards. Added basic items. Added milestone rewards. Designed icons for in-game buffs and debuffs. Designed chimera abilities. Wrote some initial lore for PVE mode. a.image2.image-link.image2-312-312 { padding-bottom: 100%; padding-bottom: min(100%, 312px); width: 100%; height: 0; } a.image2.image-link.image2-312-312 img { max-width: 312px; max-height: 312px; } 🐦 RoninRonin is the technology we use to make Axie fast and smooth. It’s by far the largest NFT scaling solution in the world. This month’s progress: There is a Ronin Whitepaper in the works. It will describe our vision, the underlying technology, as well as the RON token and its function in the ecosystem. We surpassed 100 M USD deposited on Ronin! We have a rough launch plan for the Ronin decentralized exchange (dex). The dex has a name but you can think of it as Project X. Project X will become the easiest place to trade all the tokens within our ecosystem. This means more liquidity for AXS & SLP. We set an internal release deadline for the AXS staking dashboard. We made major progress on a Block explorer upgrade. Ramp, our Fiat gateway, has processed 4 million dollars in ETH purchases over the last 30 days!

  3. a.image2.image-link.image2-728-1456 { padding-bottom: 50%; padding-bottom: min(50%, 728px); width: 100%; height: 0; } a.image2.image-link.image2-728-1456 img { max-width: 1456px; max-height: 728px; } Last week, we passed an amazing landmark. The 1 millionth Axie was born! Many of our community members wanted a chance to breed and own this historic Axie. However, its birth was controversial. The breeder used an advanced method to interact directly with the Ronin chain and submit many breeding transactions at once using a breeding script. Many of you expressed concern that this was unfair and a violation of the TOS. After hours of internal discussion and careful analysis of your feedback we’ve come to a solution that we believe will be beneficial to the community in the long run. We believe that the root cause of the confusion came from a lack of clarity around enforcement of our TOS. While our TOS said that automation was not allowed, we were clearly allowing some automation in cases that benefited the community. The community bot from #🍾・axie-purchases is a clear example of one such exception. People had also been using scripts to breed for years. This was good in that it burned SLP and allowed for the Axie population to keep up with huge demand from new players. This was an example of “good automation”. However, using breeding scripts in “breeding events” clearly destroys fun for many players. We’ve come to a solution that we believe balances: • The demand for lots of Axies and SLP. • Fun during breeding events. Here are our clarified terms regarding automation: Automation is banned when: • Playing the card battle game and future games (land, mini-games, etc). • Buying and selling NFTs from the marketplace. Automation is allowed for: • Scholarship management.* • Building publicly available tools & bots related to data transparency and analysis. • Breeding, EXCEPT when there is a breeding event happening. We will give 1 weeks notice before a breeding automation ban window goes into place. In order to easily accommodate the demand for data access from community developers, we will be building a 3rd party API that can be hammered without disrupting performance of our web applications (such as the marketplace). We will keep you updated on this initiative and we can’t wait to see what you build! With regards to punishment, we've decided to ban Axie 1,000,000 for 365 days. There were many developers who contemplated using a similar strategy but believed that it would be against the spirit of the TOS. Future violations, now that the terms are clear, will result in harsher punishments. Thanks for your patience and support during this interesting and complex chain of events! * While Scholarship management automation is allowed, Sky Mavis is not responsible for your private keys and can't recover stolen or lost assets. Please be aware of this fact, when using such management tools. View the full article

We announced a 7.5 M Series A funding round for Sky Mavis. Behind the scenes, we’ve made major progress on Battles V2, a dex on Ronin, and more! What a month! North, South, East, and West— our revolution is spreading across the globe. May saw a flurry of exciting developments for our nation. From skyrocketing volume on Ronin, to an Axie documentary—May had it all!

This is a very early build but has been great for getting some initial feedback from competitive players, casuals, and content creators. V2 is a huge upgrade in terms of art and animations. We’re still working on the gameplay to make sure it balances the line between accessibility and depth. Card draw - We’re thinking hard about the card draw system and how to make it fun, engaging, and skill-based. The current system we have in testing has some weaknesses. Starter axies - The art for our main starter Axies is finished! We have a progression system for unlocking more than the initial 3. The starter Axies have some initial placeholder cards that fit to their archetypes. Road to launch - We’ve created an internal roadmap for V2. PVE - We’ve started working on the art for PVE story mode and the bosses. Items - The spec for items is being defined. There will be consumables, materials, quest items, and more! Card Art - Our art team has made significant progress with card art design. a.image2.image-link.image2-371-658 { padding-bottom: 56.25%; padding-bottom: min(56.25%, 370.125px); width: 100%; height: 0; } a.image2.image-link.image2-371-658 img { max-width: 658px; max-height: 370.125px; } Ronin Ronin has been a roaring success so far. As expected, there was definitely some roughness in the transition due to the complexity of the migration. Things are settling down now and the benefits are supercharging our nation. a.image2.image-link.image2-112-1262 { padding-bottom: 8.874801901743265%; padding-bottom: min(8.874801901743265%, 112px); width: 100%; height: 0; } a.image2.image-link.image2-112-1262 img { max-width: 1262px; max-height: 112px; } Volume is up 291%. The number Axie NFT traders is up 160% and the quantity of NFT sales on our marketplace is up a staggering 409%! There are now 67,000 Axie holders on Ronin. There’s also over 10 M USD locked in the Ronin bridge contract. Dex - We have a design ready for a decentralized exchange (Dex) on top of Ronin. We have an internal deadline for the launch. RON - We have made progress on RON token design. This will be a key piece of the Dex puzzle. Ramp - Ramp, our fiat gateway, has already distributed over 320,000 USD in ETH to our community in less than a week. This has been crucial in allowing our community to get funds deposited to Ronin without friction! Buy WETH With Card On Ronin Questions? 🌟 Join Axie Discord 🌊 Axie Infinity FAQ View the full article

This development will allow users to get started with Axie without having to go through the clunky process of getting ETH on a centralized exchange, transferring it to MetaMask, and then depositing it to Ronin! The more we can streamline and reduce these on-boarding steps, the faster our nation will grow! Questions? 🌟 Join Axie Discord 🌊 Axie Infinity FAQ View the full article

Join Our Community Our season structure rewards you for climbing the leaderboard with boosted SLP drops and juicy AXS prizes. Due to our expanding user-base and Ronin allowing for gas-free claiming, we’ve expanded the AXS leaderboard rewards to the top 300 players. You can see the new distribution below: a.image2.image-link.image2-938-1261 { padding-bottom: 74.38540840602697%; padding-bottom: min(74.38540840602697%, 938px); width: 100%; height: 0; } a.image2.image-link.image2-938-1261 img { max-width: 1261px; max-height: 938px; } 1000 mAXS= 1 AXS so the reward for 1st place is 500 AXS(~3,000 USD)Now that Ronin phase 2 is here, we’ve decided to release a larger balancing patch. This will expand the meta and give you new goals to breed towards! a.image2.image-link.image2-892-956 { padding-bottom: 93.30543933054393%; padding-bottom: min(93.30543933054393%, 892px); width: 100%; height: 0; } a.image2.image-link.image2-892-956 img { max-width: 956px; max-height: 892px; } Please remember that battle Axies are subject to shifting stats and adjustments. If you want to collect Axies with value not subject to shifting metas, you should look at Mystic, Origin, MEO, Holiday, and Japanese Axies which have capped supplies. Battles V2 will also represent a huge shift in how battles work. What’s strong now may be less strong in the future (and vice versa!). See you in the arena!

If you'd like to learn about using NFTs in games, reach out to us at [email protected] Sometimes you’re so early to a market that you feel like you’re building for yourself and a few close friends. When Axie was born 3 years ago, almost nobody cared or understood what an NFT was. a.image2.image-link.image2-431-574 { padding-bottom: 75.03999999999999%; padding-bottom: min(75.03999999999999%, 430.7296px); width: 100%; height: 0; } a.image2.image-link.image2-431-574 img { max-width: 574px; max-height: 430.7296px; } Our office in 2018. Bear market grinding is imprinted in our culture.We knew most of our players by name and Axie Discord felt like an intimate chat by campfire. How things have changed! In retrospect, this was a crucial rite of passage for us and our battle-hardened community. It was dark and cold but the scar tissue is our secret weapon and that environment can never be recreated. In the beginning, we attracted a community of missionaries more interested in changing gaming than quick money. These are our core beliefs: NFTs enable new types of games: just as mobile gaming unlocked new design space and player archetypes, so too will NFT games. These games won’t look like the games of the past and will require an entirely new perspective and skillset to build. Gamers crave property rights: property rights incentivize players to act more like founders and employees rather than users. These rights include: being able to sell your game assets to anyone in the world, earning liquid tokens for playing/contributing, and being able to own a piece of the game you’re playing. Play-to-earn: unlocks new types of work around digital Metaverse economies, just as Uber, AirBNB, and DoorDash created new types of jobs and professions. ✨A New AgeFrom humble beginnings, Axie has grown to be the largest NFT gaming ecosystem with the metrics to prove it: Over 41,000 daily active users + 45,000+ Axie holders Over 15 M USD in monthly NFT volume. A fully diluted market cap of over 2 Billion USD. The #1 NFT game and one of the most used applications on Ethereum. This is just the beginning of a long and fascinating journey. The next steps involve: Lowering barriers to entry. It’s still too hard to get started with NFT games. So we’ve built Ronin, an Ethereum sidechain tailor-made to scale Axie Infinity and other digital nations moving forward. More fun. We’ve already started hiring traditional game developers. Tesla was able to acquire the skills they lacked because their vision was huge and acted as a magnet for talent. Why wait for triple AAA game studios to catch on when we can simply hire their star talent? Scaling play to earn. As an NFT game grows its community, advertisers and sponsors will start injecting capital into these ecosystems, making them even more attractive to gamers. This means that NFT games will benefit from network effects in a way that games have never been able to before. a.image2.image-link.image2-519-606 { padding-bottom: 85.60490045941806%; padding-bottom: min(85.60490045941806%, 518.7656967840735px); width: 100%; height: 0; } a.image2.image-link.image2-519-606 img { max-width: 606px; max-height: 518.7656967840735px; } 🛡️ The Battle to ComeNFTs with utility and fun baked into them are an inevitable part of the future. So far, we’ve been underfunded. We’ve been scrappy and this will always be a part of our DNA. Thankfully, this new funding round will allow us to be more aggressive with our hiring and our growth experiments. We anticipate Axie scaling to millions of users through: A world class creator program that blends the best referral systems ever created and adds a touch of blockchain magic. Free to play-to-earn will unlock millions of new users who will try Axie for the fun before making any economic decisions. Hundreds of thousands of users try to play Axie each month but give up due to all the steps. User generated content will unleash the true potential of Axie. In the future, Sky Mavis will be one of many organizations building on top of Axie and Ronin. Axie will become a hive mind not limited by the ideas of a single central team. Axie’s success will act as a magnet to attract more builders to NFT gaming. We’ll help these pioneers launch and scale their projects both technically using Ronin and by introducing our peerless community to their products. This is the future we see ahead. It’s still so early, especially for NFT games which we believe require the most work but also have the largest potential. To help summon this future we’re thrilled to share that we’ve raised 7.5 M USD through an amazing group of new community members. We're hiring gritty, gifted, and persuasive missionaries to help us in this epic quest.

With over 30,000 daily active users, they have proven product-market fit and an incredibly passionate community. We're excited to support Sky Mavis as they scale to the next 300,000 and then 3 million users." - Ari Paul, CIO at Blocktower Capital "The Sky Mavis team is pioneering community owned games. They have fostered a community of committed players because of their ability to provide true economic freedom within their ecosystem. We are thrilled to be investors in them and to be supporting their quest to showcase the power of player ownership." - Jason Chapman, Partner at Konvoy “Sitting at the intersection of digital play, property ownership, and the future of work—Axie Infinity is one of the most fascinating and ambitious gaming projects in the world. With over 30k DAUs and 40k Axie holders, and no signs of slowing down, we’re witnessing a powerful, community-run digital nation form in real time. We are excited to partner with the stellar team at Sky Mavis as they scale Axie Infinity over the next decade.” - Collab + Currency’s Derek Schloss and Stephen McKeon I think Axie is an amazing platform. It's fun and engaging. It's a game you want to play for hours on end. Add the Axie economy and you have something special. I'm excited to be part of it. - Mark Cuban "We are excited to support the Sky Mavis team as they continue to build category defining games such as Axie Infinity and explore the intersection between gaming, social and digital ownership. Games with digital property rights and participatory economies turn users into owners and are spawning a new wave of experimentation and value creation." - Libertus Capital Want to write about Sky Mavis?

You can now migrate your Axies to Ronin for a smooth breeding, token claiming, and marketplace experience! Deposit ETH/AXS/SLP for use on Ronin here. Visit our Migration FAQ if you have questions. If you need further assistance please join our Discord and use the #support-bugs channel. Time’s up, let’s do this. We’re proud to announce that Ronin phase 2 is live! Ronin is bringing economic freedom to an entirely new generation of Axie players by streamlining user experience and reducing the burden of expensive gas fees. Building on Ethereum Mainnet is a bit like training inside the hyperbolic time chamber from Dragonball Z. We’ve had pressure weighing on us in the form of high transaction fees. This was good. In order to grow, we needed to be exceptional. Now it’s time to see what we can do when we take our destiny into our own hands. What this means: You can now breed, buy, and sell Axies on Ronin, our Ethereum sidechain. The Axie marketplace, breeding, and morphing contracts have been paused so Ronin is the only place to perform these actions. You can now claim AXS and SLP rewards on Ronin. We’ve taken a key step towards scaling our digital nation to millions of users. a.image2.image-link.image2-720-1280 { padding-bottom: 56.25%; padding-bottom: min(56.25%, 720px); width: 100%; height: 0; } a.image2.image-link.image2-720-1280 img { max-width: 1280px; max-height: 720px; } Here’s how to migrate to Ronin in 3 easy steps: 1. Make sure you have the Ronin wallet installed on Desktop. Download Ronin Wallet 2. Migrate your Axies to Ronin from your Marketplace Dashboard. You can do this on desktop only, for now. Just press the “Transfer to Ronin” button and then sign two messages: one on Ethereum and one on Ronin. Easy peasy! a.image2.image-link.image2-444-506 { padding-bottom: 87.70491803278689%; padding-bottom: min(87.70491803278689%, 443.78688524590166px); width: 100%; height: 0; } a.image2.image-link.image2-444-506 img { max-width: 506px; max-height: 443.78688524590166px; } 3. Deposit ETH, AXS, and SLP to Ronin. SLP & AXS have been upgraded.* Your old tokens will be automatically upgraded when any amount is deposited to Ronin. For example, if you have 200 old AXS and then deposit 100 to Ronin, you will now have 100 upgraded AXS on Ronin and 100 upgraded AXS on Ethereum. If you want to keep these tokens on Ethereum, upgrade them here. Keep in mind that simply depositing AXS/SLP to Ronin saves you gas as you’re upgrading and depositing with 1 transaction. Deposit ETH/AXS/SLP Confused? Check out the tutorial below! You can now do up to 100 free breeds and marketplace actions each day (per address)! Each seed phrase can hold 20 addresses right now, so each seed phrase can do 2,000 transactions each day. We are working on expanding these limits. For Scholarship Owners Make additional addresses under 1 seed phrase (the current limit is 20). Migrate each account to a separate address. If you have more than 20 scholars, please know that the limit will be increased. You have 1 month before your Ethereum Axies will stop being recognized within the battle application. For now, you can use multiple chrome profiles to have different instances of the wallet installed. Make sure to keep your seed phrase for each of these wallets safe! Still have questions? Visit the Migration FAQ. Read Migration FAQ Please note that you will only be able to continue using your Ethereum Axies in-game for 1 month. After this 1 month grace period, you will not be able to use your Axies inside Axie games built by Sky Mavis such as the current Community Alpha. 👀 Key ChangesThe breeding fee has been changed from .005 ETH to 1 AXS. We will rebalance this aspect in the future based on market signals. The SLP requirements per breed are still the same, but we will be monitoring this closely and may adjust it after we have some new data. We discussed adjusting it to start off, but we want to gather some data first. The first adjustment might happen as soon as Tuesday. The AXS from the breeding fee from this point forward will be earmarked for the Community Treasury. This means that Sky Mavis no longer has centralized ownership of the breeding fee! There’s another breeding-related change that we’ll let you discover yourself! Axies no longer require transactions to grow from the juvenile stages. 5 days after an Axie is bred, you will click a button to morph you Axie from egg to adult. This means genes will be revealed after 5 days now. All current larvae are now eggs. All petites are now adults. Japanese Axies can no longer be bred. They are retired! The old Axie contracts on Ethereum have been paused. This includes the marketplace contract, breeding contract, and morphing contract. The Axies you had listed for sale have been de-listed so you need to put them up again on the Ronin marketplace. The old Axie tokens are now non-transferable fossils that denote your participation in a golden age of NFT exploration. Less than 50,000 addresses will ever have these tokens serving as a badge of honor. Congrats! You will be able to migrate these old Axie tokens to Ronin at any time in the future, but they will stop showing up in-game on May 29th. If you’re a 3rd party developer and need guidance regarding tracking Ronin data or building tools please refer to this document. SLP has been re-branded to Smooth Love Potion. Turn on the Luther Vandross 😏 ✨What’s ComingFiat Gateway- We’re working with a Fiat provider so you will be able to buy ETH and AXS directly through your Ronin wallet. Mobile Migration- We’re working on a Ronin mobile application so those without access to computers can join us on Ronin! A Ronin Dex- You need to be able to buy and sell SLP, AXS, etc on Ronin without having to send them to Ethereum or a decentralized exchange. This is one of our top priorities. Ronin to Ethereum Bridge for Axies- You’ll be able to send your Axies back to Ethereum if you like in the future. Please note that the old Axie and marketplace contracts have been paused to prevent malicious activity. We decided to launch without this feature for now because we know our community has been hurting with the current system. AXS Airdrop- We haven’t forgotten about this airdrop for our supporters. This reward will be sent to your Ronin wallets as we get closer to AXS staking. We always fulfill our promises. Algorithmic Breeding Calculation- In the future we (along with governance perhaps) will use the amount of AXS and SLP required to breed to make sure that Axie population is growing at a healthy rate. The rate must be fast enough to accommodate new users but not so fast that owning a real Axie doesn’t feel special. The data gathering process for this starts now. Expanding the 100 transaction per account limit- We are currently working on systems to allow power users to use more than this allotment of transactions. Thanks for your patience on this!

In terms of an exact deadline, it’s too early to commit a date to the outside world but understand that this is a huge priority for us. We are researching decentralized exchanges so that players can access liquidity for their assets on Ronin itself. We will be deploying an upgrade to the Ronin wallet soon. Ronin is currently storing over 1 M USD of ETH, just the first of many milestones! We’ve completed an initial design for the migration of Axies to Ronin. The Promised Land While Axie has grown to become the clear leader in NFT gaming, we will never be satisfied. There remain many challenges and obstacles on our path to onboarding millions of people to this amazing new technology. Axie Infinity @AxieInfinityWhat's in the product pipeline? - Battles V2 (Ubisoft said they're a massive improvement!) - Free to try (soulbound Axies) and social login. - Full migration to Ronin ( will fix the gas fee issue) - $axs treasury + staking - Land gameplay (Project K) - Major marketplace upgrade. March 14th 2021 167 Retweets628 LikesEarlier this month, we tweeted out a rough product pipeline. We believe that each of these releases will be a key pillar in the construction of our pantheon of adoption. In the end, these releases will make sure that Axie becomes increasingly fun, meaningful, and full of opportunity. We couldn’t be more excited for the future and could never have gotten this far without each and every one of you. 🌟 Join Axie Discord 🌊 Axie Infinity FAQ 📝 Want to write about Axie?

We even have an MMA fighter in our ranks! We sat down with Olivier Aubin-Mercier, an MMA fighter from Québec about his eye-opening Axie experience. 1. Tell us a bit about yourself and how you got started with Axie. Hey, my name is Olivier Aubin-Mercier. I’m an MMA fighter and was a UFC fighter for 7 years. Last year I signed with a PFL, a promotion who does a "mortal Kombat" style tournament ( without the killing... thank god ) every year. The winner of this tournament will win 1 million dollars. PFL decided to take a pause during the pandemic. So this put me in a situation where I didn’t fight for more than 2 years. Recently PFL announced that they will do an event on April 23. I was super exited but I had 2 problems. In Québec, it was illegal to train, even for pro athletes. I had no more liquidity to visit a foreign country to train. I decided to borrow money from our friend, the bank, and bought a ticket for Puerto Ricco to train with the Danaher Dead Squad. In Puerto Ricco, a good friend of mine who is a crypto enthusiast introduced me to Axie. My friend told me he could lend me his Axies to try the game, so I could decide if I liked the game or not and to make a little extra money. Thats is how I learned about Axie. 2. What are you most excited about for Axie's future? I think that if the idea of play to earn works, the gaming industry will change forever. Axie could be the first solid project to make it work. Of course i’m exited about Ronin and the free to play mode. Oh and when the is land play happening, Jiho ? Yea I’m excited about that as well. 3. Has play to earn helped you in the real world? So like I said previously, I borrowed for my training camp and during a training camp it is impossible, if you are serious, to have a side job. So Axie will help me pay for that training camp. The money I earn from farming SLP will be a welcome addition and it’s super flexible, I can play during my free moments while I’m recovering. For example, if i’m in the ice bath recovering, how is it possible for me to earn during that time other than by playing Axie? 4. What makes Axie and the Axie community special, in your eyes? Simply put, I feel the community believes in the project and understand that they are part of something bigger. They want it to work. The Discord community helped me a lot when I was getting started, the beginning of the journey can be a bit complex so I think that’s been a hugely important part of the experience. 5. What did you know about Blockchain prior to Axie? I’ve been primarily a Bitcoin enthusiast. I had some ETH but wasn’t too interested in it. However I got introduced to NFTs and Axie ( Vitalik should thank you ) so now I’m using Ethereum. During the pandemic, 2 things got my attention: Crypto. The lack of physical sport and the rise of Esports. Now put them together and man, we have something explosive on our hands.
